Well, it's one for the money! Three for the auction!
Three hundred thousand to be exact!
Jack White was the one who bought the unreleased first recordings from the King himself — Elvis Presley!
And he was able to win by bidding a whopping $300,000! And Jack is NOT being greedy with his new purchase! In fact it's quite the opposite!
The hard rocker bid and won the recordings — which include an 18-year-old Elvis doing covers of That's When Your Heartaches Begin and My Happiness on 78 rpm acetate from 1953 — at an auction that took place at the Graceland Mansion this past January 8th.
And Jack White is planning to release them on vinyl through his label Third Man Records really soon!
Talk about some big name on the lineup this year!
The Coachella Valley Music Festival has FINALLY announced it's 2015 lineup and we can't get over the AH-Mazing artists for their year's three-day, two-weekend event!

It's gonna be an AWESOME and diverse eargasm this year!

Wanna see the full lineup for both weekends? Ch-ch-check it out (below)!!!
Jack White is a rebel with a cause!
The rocker was playing Fenway Park on Wednesday when he took a minute to speak to his audience, joking about how, unlike the Foo Fighters, he wouldn't be using a backup guitar player to cover up his mistakes.
He followed that comment by teasing that the Dave Grohl diss was just to help feed RollingStone.com.
After bashing the mag for its covers, its coverage of Kim Kardashian and Taylor Swift, and its "clickbait" articles, he attacked the media coverage of Kanye West, saying:
This would have been an AWESOME show to be at!
Beck performed at the Newport Folk Fest in Rhode Island over the weekend and had an unexpected guest show up during his encore!
None other than his good friend Jack White!
If you're gonna have anyone crash your set, then the White Stripes singer is the one you want, obviously!
Thankfully he looked A LOT happier than that time he went to the baseball game…
The duo performed together singing Pay No Mind, Loser, and Where It's At and it looked like it was AWESOME!
Ch-ch-check out the brilliant performances…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
The Chicago Cubs are currently sitting at dead last in the NL Central. And clearly no one is more upset by their losing record than Jack White!
The rock star was sitting in the stands at last night’s game at Wrigley Field when TV cameras caught Jack looking like he wanted to bludgeon someone with a baseball bat!
Look at that scowl!
We’re kinda surprised that Mr. White was at this game wearing Cubbies gear. He’s a Detroit native, after all. Why not throw on some Tiger threads and support the hometown? They’re at least winning this season!
Once the internet saw some of these pics, it was all over. People have been posting and reposting all day! All of the world wants to know…
WHY DOES JACK WHITE HATE BASEBALL SO MUCH?!?
See another sadsies shot of Jack above!
